Diocesan Music Consulters
Purpose and Function:
A small group of music ministers from across the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston who are appointed by the Director of Worship and Sacraments. The purpose of the Consulters is to assist the Office of Worship with planning the music for Diocesan liturgies and to identify and attempt to meet the needs of Pastoral Musicians throughout West Virginia.
Music Consulters are chosen with the purpose of representing a cross-section of the geographical regions of the Diocese.
They are asked to serve for a period of two years with the opportunity to renew if this is agreeable to both the director and said consulter. Participation by the music directors of the Cathedral and Co-Cathedral are required due to the nature of their positions.
Meetings will be convened no less than two times per year, and no more than 4. Consulters may be asked to meet more frequently based on upcoming Diocesan events. Meetings may occasionally be held via conference call, teleconference or through e-mail correspondence.
